I’ve previously posted about the bizarre stuff happening in Newark (see I Don’t Think A Supt. Suspending A Principal Because She Supported PTO President Will Encourage Parent Engagement).
Well, now the principals are no longer suspended, though not all are back at their schools, and the parent is still banned — and they’ve filed a lawsuit:
Five Newark school principals suspended for speaking out against a controversial school reorganization plan filed a federal lawsuit today charging that their constitutional rights to free speech were violated.
In addition, one school’s parent-teacher organization president joined the suit, saying the district’s refusal to allow him to enter his children’s school was also unconstitutional.
The six are seeking a restraining order against Superintendent Cami Anderson and the state-operated school district.
